City Life and a Completed Dissertation

Hey everybody, the Food Guy and I had a pretty good weekend hanging out in the ATL. Every once in a while, we like to do the city thing, and this was a good weekend for it because the weather outside was kinda rainy. We loaded up in the mobile doghouse and headed for the ATL friday afternoon. After a short stroll around Mid-town, I took a nap while the Food Guy and his girlfriend went to see "Hot Tub Time Machine." Yup, that's right, "Hot Tub Time Machine." How did the Food Guy get his girlfriend to go see that movie you ask? Well, it's 'cause she's the coolest girl around. It was actually her idea. Can't beat that can you? She not only keeps a good supply of dog bones, chicken snacks, and toys around the house for me, she also likes to go see hilarious movies. Saturday was a pretty mellow day by our standards. We went for a nice long walk through Piedmont park while the sun was shining. There are a lot of doggies running around that park, but I feel sorry for most of them because they don't look like they get out as much as I do. On saturday night, Food Guy went up to Marietta to hang out with Reeve, Rin, and the Food Guy's new little niece. Food Guy and Reeve watched Repo Man (a terrible 80's movie) while I hung out with Java and Bella. Then, those two fools went to the Battle n Brew to play some Madden 10 football on XBox 360. Man, that place sounds weird from hearing Food Guy and Reeve talk about it. The people there know more about video games than you can imagine. But, I guess it takes all kinds...

Sunday was another mellow day. I hung out at Lisa's while she and the Food Guy went to the climbing gym. It was a rainy day, so it was a good day to take a long nap on the bed. Then, we loaded back up in the mobile dog house to come back to Athens. The Food Guy had to submit a proposal for a conference in Greece in September and then get back to work on his dissertation. He finished editing that thing this morning while I slept under the desk. He just emailed it to his committee, so now we are about to have a whole lot of free time. He has a couple of articles to work on this week, then we are heading up to the Cohuttas to go backpacking next week. I can't wait.

As for our housing situation in Boone, the deal on the house went south. So, we are back to the drawing board. Food Guy has a lead on a house to rent up there that is dog friendly, so hopefully that'll work out. Well, Food Guy and I are gonna go for a walk before he goes to his afternoon meeting, so I gotta go. But, stay tuned for our next adventure.
